Description

Starts sort of hard then there is break as the climb trends up and left towards Brain Donner. The climbing is a good mix of crimps, pockets, side pulls and an undercling or two.
The holds change but the route is sustained. Good fun.

Location

Look for the route with a length of chain on the 2nd bolt.

Good route, the hard moves past the first bolt can be avoided by using the hand jam next door. Jun 5, 2015

It's really easy to set up a top rope on this route by climbing Antidote, and then just going right past the chains up towards Cotton Mouth's Chains. Just take a few extra draws. The last bolt of Cotton Mouth King is just a little bit above the chains for Antidote, not sketchy at all. Sep 9, 2016

Fantastic route. Long and more sustained than Brain Doner, but with slightly easier moves. The rock is bomber, and there are a few good rests throughout the route. Jun 10, 2018
